The session 1 with preview should be pretty neat. I think Ralphs intention is to allow fewer people to meet and talk with the brewers before the crowds show up.

Quick question...what does the $25 ticket price get you (besides a seat)?

Does everyone get a 'cask days' branded glass? Are any samples included?

The cask list looks quite long, will all beers be offered at all seatings?

I wasn't therre last year so I'm just curious....cheers!

i answered some of this (based on last year) in the other thread. the pint glass was branded with "volo cask days 2006" and last year's logo. i suspect we'll see something like the one at http://www.caskdays.com/ on this year's glass.

in past years it was the same beers for all sessions. if something was going fast, ralph was cutting it off to save some for the next session. a little more tricky with three sessions this year. there were two pins of hopocalypse last year (one for each session), and they were each gone by about the half way point in the session.

Technically they don't normally make an American IPA, unless its their homebrew wort.

personally I am super excited to see so many breweries tackle Tequila Barrel Aged brews. Finally Ontario takes us to the forefront of new styles! :wink:

Unfortunately I can't make it down on Sunday, can anyone who is going volunteer to pick me up 2 tickets? I can PayPal the money in advance and arrange to pick-up the tickets sometime prior to the fest! Help would be greatly appreciated! PM me! Thanks!

I was wondering the same thing as JWalter, I live in St. Catharines and I would prefer not to drive up to Toronto on sunday for the sole purpose of buying a ticket. If anyone would be willing to buy a single for the brewer's breakfast I would be more than happy to paypal the money to them, or give them the cash on the day of the event. Please send me a message if anyone is agreeable to this.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry, no extras. I arrived at 11am to find the line going around the corner. The line took a full hour for me to get to the front, just before the Saturday evening session sold out.

When buying the tickets, they were taking everyone's name and phone number. This was the cause of the line moving so slowly. Does anybody know why they were doing this? I didn't think to ask at the time.
